Arrived at Mandalay Station from Bagan, taking an overnight train. The station was easy enough to use. We didn’t hang around as had a plane to catch.

Mandalay is located almost in the centre of Myanmar though is a hub. People wait everywhere, sleeping and eating and sometimes having a party. But despite of this, railway station is not too dirty.
